It's common to base handicap at or near the top bowlers in the league. And, I'm not sure what the logic is. Seems to me the handicap limit should be lowered, and those over it should be scratch. Give those lower than 200 a cap. Those over should bowl scratch. Or, change the % to 95 to tighten the league difference.

Head to head competition, during league does make it more competitive too. I can't really say that I openly have seen people sandbag, with the full intention of holding their average down. To me, it's just a word that I haven't experienced.

It was strange to me when I got into my first cap league based on 220. So, why was there discussion a the USBC meeting a year ago to base all handicap on 300?
